Identity based cryptography offers an extremely bright alternative to public key based cryptography in the grid computing scenario. A majority of the current security architecture for grid systems use public key infrastructure based security to authenticate grid members and to secure resource allocation to them. In this paper, the authors present identity based cryptography for the grid architecture which, not only supports the standard services like single sign on, authorization, mutual authentication and delegation but also signatures meant for a particular entitled verifier.
